Election Day 2021: Live results and analysis - (FULL, 11/2-3)

Join Post reporters for live results and analysis as Virginia votes for governor, lieutenant governor and its House of Delegates. There are also two special House races in Ohio, contentious ballot measures and mayoral races across the country.

Virginia is one of just two states that holds its statewide elections the year following a presidential contest, and the race is often viewed as a kind of referendum on the party in the White House — and how it might fare in the midterms the following year.

Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe (D) is looking to become only the second person since the Civil War to serve twice in the state’s top elected office. The 64-year-old most recently led the Democratic Party’s efforts on redistricting across the country. During his time as governor, he became known for his efforts on economic development, although he faced gridlock due to a Republican majority in the General Assembly that kept him from achieving his signature campaign promises on health care.

McAuliffe faces Glenn Youngkin (R), who has alternately flirted with former president Donald Trump’s ideology and kept him at an arm’s length. He has touted his support for guns and “election integrity,” while focusing on schools and the economy in a bid for suburban voters.
